Social Venture Partners practices venture philanthropy, a model that mimics venture capital investing to make social impact. Rather than investing in start-up businesses, venture philanthropists invest in nonprofit organizations and community causes.
We partner engaged citizens who invest their money, skills, and connections to make positive change with community leaders who have the solutions but require resources to increase their community impact.
SVP can help EO members and forums by:
